If you prefer your sandwiches with condiments, ask for ketchup or mustard that you can add yourself to control how much to put on your food.

However, as the cost of semi-conductor material falls and companies vie for consumers so LED is becoming a more cost-effective option. In conjunction, improved heat sink technology and reliability is giving customers the confidence to view LED as a long term investment. These days a typical lamp life of 20,000-50,000 is the norm and not an unrealistic manufacturer claim. Some lamps, such as the new Philips Xtreme tubes even last up to a staggering 79,000 hours. It is worth also noting that not all LED are dimmable so check before purchasing if this is something you require.

The plethora of light bulbs and lighting technology on the market and the rapid pace of development in the industry is both cause for consumer celebration and caution. Greater range of choice gives consumers unprecedented freedom but also means it is more important than ever to choose the right light bulb for the right application. Comparing lumens per watt values is an easy way to identify the most "light" efficient lamp in terms of brightness. But to work out which lamp type is best for a specific application in terms of energy efficiency the following things need to be considered: wattage, lamp life, daily use, lamp cost and lighting output required. The best way to do this is with an energy saving calculator. By entering specific values you can compare your current light bulbs with those you are considering replacing them with and make an informed lighting decision based on an energy saving forecast.

When performing lighting design for a room, keep the following facts in mind: Lighting always requires shadow in order to create contrast and visual appeal. Bright overhead lights, while capable of illuminating every aspect of a room, often turn it into a "monotone" and boring space. A given living space typically requires from 5 to 10 light sources in order to be adequately lit. The exact number of light sources will also depend on the color scheme of the room; a darkly painted room will require more lighting than a lightly painted one. Similarly, a heavily decorated room will require more light sources in order to highlight the many interesting features of that space. Matching light collections are ideal for achieving unity in a single room, as well as saving on purchasing time. Pictures and paintings are important features of a room and should be illuminated. Highlighting such items also helps to define the perimeter of a room. To make a room more interesting, try varying the heights of light sources, as well as their intensities (e.g., by installing dimmer switches). Such variations will help create different areas of shade intensity and size.

Whether for home or office, or even garden, you will always find a style to suit you, and the market is flooded with options so it is impossible not to find something that you like. There are a few main considerations when choosing lighting, and it is usually a good idea to consult an expert. Visiting some of the stores online is good because you can see pictures of different designs, get some advice on certain styles, as well as view prices and stockists. Other great ways to work out what type of lights one wants, is to flick through magazines, ask friends and family, or go to a store and look around.

Unlike incandescent bulbs which normally require a colored lens to produce the red, blue, and green colors necessary for navigation lighting, LEDs can produce these colors naturally. This means that clear lenses can be used, resulting in a brighter navigation light without the colored lens that can reduce the fixtures overall light output. While LED navigation lights are certainly available with colored lenses for the purists out there, they simply aren't necessary and in reality reduce overall effectiveness.

These lamps only offer around a 30% energy saving over incandescents and typically last 2,000-5,000 hours but they do have some advantages over LED and CFLs which are worth considering. In some cases truly retrofit LED can be hard to find and difficulties with the fitting and size of the lamp can occur. The nature of a CFL means its appearance differs from that of an incandescent. Halogen energy savers are however available in a range of shapes including spot bulbs, GLS, candle, aluminium reflector and golf ball making them an easy retrofit replacement for many traditional incandescents and an option worth thinking about particularly if you require decorative on show lighting. For those wishing to retain the traditional shape of their lighting long term, a G9 halogen adaptor is a great way to do so. A G9 halogen capsule is fitted in to the adaptor base (available as SBC, BC, SES, ES) which is in turn screwed into a decorative cover. Once the halogen capsule has expired, the bulb can be unscrewed and only the capsule needs replacing - meaning your decorative lighting remains the same. Another advantage of halogen energy savers is that unlike some LED and CFL they are fully dimmable. Furthermore halogens and CFLs emit light evenly whereas LEDs emit light directionally so make sure to check the beam angle before purchasing to ensure you get the right light output.

These are the lights that provide all the soft, non-directional light - and usually determine the 'mood' of your kitchen. You can install accent lights inside cabinets (even better if they are glass), put on some spotlights to highlight a photo or an interesting detail. To add some fizz to your kitchen, consider installing dim lights under the toe-kick. It will make your cabinets seem to float and give off a great accent lighting.
Addilyn Mclean Lighting, 2018-09-22 08:42:05. So what energy savings options are there? Everyone is talking about Light Emitting Diodes (LED) at the moment and rightly so given their dramatic advances recently in lumen efficacy and lamp life. Depending on the application, compact fluorescents (CFL) and halogen energy savers are also an effective way to save energy. In most cases a retrofit replacement lamp can be found and energy saving bulbs are available in all the normal cap types including bayonet, Edison screw, GU10 and many more.

Before you can purchase your lights you must also decide on whether you want low (12v) or high (120v) voltage lamps in your garden, or a mixture of the two. Your choice will determine what sort of electrical cabling system and electrical fittings you'll need to provide the power for your lighting.
